DMI’s Design Committee is conducting a wreath fundraiser for “Milford in Bloom”

Partnering with Three Rivers Wreath & Plant Company, Downtown Milford Inc.’s (DMI) Design Committee is offering fresh and fragrant wreaths, garlands, swags and kissing balls for the holiday season. The Design Committee created “Milford in Bloom,” which provides downtown with the annual installation of flowers on lamp posts and baskets as well as seasonal greens in the fall.

“Milford In Bloom has been running seasonal fundraisers for over five years and 100 percent of the profit goes toward the purchase of the annual plants,” Dave Pickrell, a member of the committee said. “I don’t think anyone would disagree that this program needs to continue, not only for the enjoyment of our residents, but because of the positive visual experience the plants provide for visitors as well.”

The fundraiser offers several different types of wreaths as well as door swags, tabletop plants and kissing balls. Pickrell explained that DMI discovered Three Rivers just this year and chose them because they are located close to the Northeast.

“They own and operate their own nursery and tree farm,” Pickrell said. “They specialize in direct sale fundraising programs for schools and non-profits. Since COVID, we discovered that direct sale and ship methods were a safer avenue for the customer, and they eliminate waste.”

The fundraiser began October 28 and runs through December 5. This year, buyers can choose a shipping date when they place their order. Flyers have been placed around town with a QR code that anyone interested can scan or orders can be placed by visiting www.threeriversfundraising.com/fund/dminc-wr21.
